Great job on everything !!!!
Aww, thank you and Nippy appreciates the warm compliments too! Actually it was very easy to set up the cam. I am using a Logitec Webcam Pro 9000 which is actually taped to a piece of wood since its not tripod compatable. The streaming software is a free one called YawCam oand lets you build a small home page as well as some other nice features.Check out www.yawcam.com
. As for the domain nippycam.zapto.org, that is through www.noip.com
. That is a free service that lets you turn your private ip address into a domain name. If your ip ever changes, no-ip updates with your chosen name, so no worries for you to have to keep track of a long ip number :). My internet is thru clearwire and Im on the cheapest plan they offer, hence the choppyness of Nippys feed.
I hope this helps you and I would really look forward to seeing your cam up and running if you do it. Perseus looks beautiful. He woukd be a star on the cam! Its a pleasure to meet you :) Seems like theres a lot of nice folks on here. Thank you again and let me know of your progress!
